Julie Andrews' 'Sound Of Music' Costumes Sell For $1.3 million
A selection of costumes from Julie Andrews' classic movie The Sound Of Music have sold at auction in California for $1.3 million.
The garments included the main outfit worn by the Hollywood legend's character Maria, which was described in the auction handbook as "a heavy brown homespun Austrian-style dress with a wheat-coloured homespun blouse".
Floral lederhosen worn by cast members who played the Von Trapp children also went under the hammer at the Profiles in History auction over the weekend.
Another highlight was a costume worn by late actor James Gandolfini in his final scene of The Sopranos, which sold for $22,000. The outfit was placed under auction before Gandolfini passed away from a heart attack while in Italy last month.
A painting of the plantation building Tara from Gone With The Wind, used in the 1939 film's opening sequence, fetched $270,000, and a diving helmet from 1954 movie 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea sold for $75,000.
